Designers use Comic Sans to fight cancer | Typography | Creative Bloq | Make Money Writing and Publishing | Scoop.it

LOL, this is too funny. So I love Comic Sans, but that would make me an enemy to most designers who see comic sans as low brow kitsch. I love the humor here. You might think having cancer means you can't laugh.

I'm here to tell you laughter may well be the best medicine especially snarky inside design humor like this. This cancer survivor / patient loves it.
